- In addition, the CAHS, Inc., as an official NON-Profit, was instrumental in inventorying and assisting regarding the 2nd Step of the National Registered Historic District of buildings and homes that represent the Boom Town of Charleroi, c. 1890, Incorp. 1892, which is Charleroi's large "Museum" on the River Mon, in Washington County.
- Further, the CAHS, Inc. was directly instrumental in preserving and restoring the still intact Goaziou Print Shop as a tour facility for Charleroi, and advocates that there be other such sites set up throughout the town and adjoining communities for Heritage-Tourism purposes so that these communities will have an industry that will not easily pick up and leave as has happened in the past. This would provide diversity, not only for Charleroi, but its surrounding MV communities, but also the County of Washington, as well as the MV region.
- We were very involved is trying to assist in the work involved in trying to save the Coyle Theater for Charleroi also over the last few years it existed. Coyle Theater - c. 1891 to 2019.
